Back to the Sawcliffe Green man and on a roll. I love doing detail work, so it always seems to go by much quicker. That being said the last two days have been productive, eyes are drawn in and the nose is just about done,

along with the brows, which I connected to the large angled leaves. I began working on the very front of the forehead leaf and noticed I still did not like the shape or placement of the acorns, so I decided to take another leap into the learning experience lane. I am going to lower the acorns and move them into a more upright position in order to set them properly against the big leaves as they were meant to be, and curl the scalp leaf to rest against the acorns. This leaves the problem of the twigs, I don’t want to re-carve them so I am going to excise them completely and finish the area, then reattach them on the top of the acorn caps rather than underneath where they sit now.
